IMHO, I thought this was the best of the three in Philly, but preferred Hartford. Great show and wished they had kept 'Black Muddy River' in one of the sets as it was a big downer in the encore spot all the time, although it is a beautiful, yet sad song.

2nd Set: A brisk "Mississippi" starts us out as we continue our journey via the pastoral roads of 'Wake of the Flood.' "Playing" continues the '73 feel of the show's song choices; although filled with sonic speculations it doesn't approach the space embodied by the best of early 70 vesions. The allowance of time to build a tense story is lost, as are the intense 'tiger' sections of old. "China" is well-played tho not spare enough to break my heart. "Man Smart" is back to easy, blithe and carefree music. Kinda would have preferred a "He's Gone" in this spot... but oh well. It goes right into an abbreviated 'Drums' and "Space" Nice 'Wheel' teases, let's see...oh yea. It's strong too. I'm boogeying to "GDTRFB" like I always do... this version is casually confident. Great arena rock!! "Playin reprise" keeps the place shaking tho it's kind of a wasted choice. "Black" is not really needed tonight, but at least it's the short ballad. A gay rocking "Magnolia." ends the proceedings.
"Quinn" keeps the energy joyous and unrepentent.
A fun show to listen to. (Tho, I'm sticking with my He's Gone should've been there instead of Man Smart, assertion)
